    Just some basic travelling cloaks and a decent cover story would probably do fine. Avita and Fion will probably always look like Jesadians, but Jesadian types have an excellent excuse for wandering around in a warzone with a few bodyguards.

    FYI, I don't expect to be posting over the next two days due to an upcoming medical examination.

    So the plan to buy some travelling clothes for Sarrazin, Sarim and Pamela, find an inn to stay at, then leave in the wee hours of the morning. Correct?

    Avita will need at least a cloak. And something with sleeves.

    Yes, I'm terrible at coming up with fake names. REAL fantasy names I'm fine with. Fake names I always try to make funny.

    Okay, so what's the next phase in your plan?

    The city gates open at dawn, but security has recently increased due to the demons and Pelorites. The village where Kathe is said to live, called Merton, is about 30 miles from the city over flat, well-paved road. On foot, it would take you over a day to get there.

    On the way there, you'll be passing through tame countryside, mostly marsh, farmland and light woods. There are several Pelorite camps surrounding the city, each around 10 miles from its walls, but according to preliminary reports their patrols are covering as much ground as their current manpower will allow. More troops seem to be arriving every day.

    Quite a few people have fled from the countryside into Senra, but there are definitely still civilians living there.

    Dirk has to come. He knows too much to let him gab about the barracks.

    Horses are a good idea. We can visit a livery stable in the morning. Should have done it this afternoon, and means a bit of a departure from Avita's "gone in the dark of the morning" plan but the extra mobility should be worth it.

    And if we HAD got the horses this afternoon, we'd have had to pay for stablage, so hey; efficiency.

    We'll stick to the "light woods" as much as possible. We'll plan on camping out tomorrow night and getting to Kathe sometime day-after-tomorrow at a reasonable hour. Pelorites get bluffed past, or killed, or run away from. Whatever works.

    I'm about to bring this up in-character, but I'm not sure what we're going to DO with Kathe. She could be anything from "Supervillain" to "Harmless eccentric with some cool tricks" to "Honest but misled recluse". We don't know enough about her. And I'm more worried about that than the Sunnyboys.

    So then: find the nearest stable that's open at the crack of dawn, buy some horses, then ride out? It's 75gp for a light horse.

    Not that we can't afford them now that we've gotten our latest paycheck, but is it possible to rent some horses instead of buying them outright?

    That should be doable.

    Right, so we get ourselves some rent-a-horsies and then get going in accordance with Marlowe's suggested route. And we can narrate en route what we're going to do with the sorceress when we find her - if we find her.

    So what next? Try and skirt through the fields around the Pelorite checkpoint? Approach them directly? Turn back? Something else?

    Keep yourself rested, Yossarian. In truth I've been working really long lately as well.

    Avita goes for the ever-unexpected "speak the plain truth" method of deception. The usual choice of Lawfuls. Wunna wotz gunna happen.

    Fion is fairly certain he's gonna be chopping up some morons in the near furture.

    As you may be able to guess, combat is happening. I've rolled for initiative. A reminder that to make PbP combat easier, I just have all the players act at the same time, so we don't have to delay combat for days waiting for someone to declare their action in the proper initiative order.

    In this case, you guys will be going first.

    Thanks. I really do enjoy this game, but it's sometimes hard to get up the energy to write something coherent every night.

    I wonder if this campaign's going to end with us discovering that we've actually been IN the Abyss the whole time and that's why everyone around is so Chaotic Squirrely.

    Bartmanhomer, I suggest a few augmented Mind Thrusts.

    The best part about being a Psion is that most of the powers get stronger and increasing damage every turn.

    No, they don't. You have to augment them using additional points.

    Could Pamela's character sheet link be added to the first post? Currently, the only way to view Pamela is mid-way down page 4, which isn't exactly handy.

    Stern Lady, I wish we still had the Warlock.

    True but psion damage increased by using additional points. Last time that I check Psion is a Tier 2 class. So it's a very good class.

    Was my post clear enough, Yossarian? I think it's fairly simple what Avita is trying to do, but it felt like a bit of a mess explaining it.

    Irrelevant; I know they used the name "Kilgour" because it's got "Kill" and "Gore" in it and they think it sounds scary, but in New Zealand the Kilgour brothers are a very well-respected couple of pop musicians, so every time I cast the spell I think of nice, curly-haired boys playing guitar and pounding drums and singing about girls.

    EDIT: And I'm SURE Kushina won't mind if you "run" Sarim. There's killin' to be done.

    No problem. The gamer in me will mourn a stellar Diplomacy check wasted, but like I said - Sarrazin was kind of spoiling for a fight, so he's happy.
